Parts that work with iPad Mini LTE/CDMA:
Apple released the iPad Mini Wi-Fi on November 2, 2012, a smaller and lighter version of the iPad tablet featuring a 1024-by-768 163 pixel per inch touch-sensitive display, a dual core 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and three flash memory options of 16, 32, or 64 GB. External connection and power supply is handled by a Lightning port, in place of the Dock Connector port of earlier iPads. The iPad Mini Wi-Fi has a rear-mounted 5 megapixel "iSight" camera, a front-mounted 1.2 megapixel "FaceTime HD" camera, and supports dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. The CDMA version offers LTE data connectivity through Verizon in the United States.
The iPad mini front glass panel is held to the aluminum case with strips of adhesive. Once the device is opened, this adhesive will need to be replaced. Our iPad mini repair kits include the needed adhesive.
